Christmas time is here.. and gone... and still Rocketteing

Well Christmas was alright. I really missed my family, but it was great to be able to be surrounded by friends. 

In the morning I woke up and ordered room service with 6 of the girls. It was really fun. We just gossiped, ate, and enjoyed each others company. It was really hard being away from my family, but it helped to keep busy.

After breakfast, we headed over to the homeless shelter. When we arrived, they asked if anyone sang. Our santa (who plays piano beautifully) was there along with myself and one other Rockette who sings. We went into their chapel and sang charols while the people were entering the church. They LOVED IT!!! it was so rewarding to be able to lend my talents to make people who are so much less fortunate than I happy.

After our singing, we served dinner. I really cant explain how wonderful it felt to be able to provide help to these people. There were men dressed in fancy suits, clearly coming from a day at the office.. who also clearly had nothing.. and had to resort to a food kitchen on christmas eve. It is incredibly suprising to disover the people who are so desperatly in need. It could be the person walking next to you on the street... looking completely at ease with his life, but on the inside wondering how he is going to feed his children that night. I was sooo glad I was able to help. They were truly all so grateful for our help that night. That is the best kind of Christmas figt.

The next morning, I woke up and read the paper... and w
hat was there but an article... AND A PICTURE OF ME!!


It was awesome to see that our services did not go unnoticed...

I truly felt the spirit of giving.

Well... we're in TEXAS right now! and I only have one more city until i get to come home!! HORRAYYYY!!!!

till next time... VOS out :)
